A Slash Above The Rest [Evil Dead Review]
Having been able to see the world premiere of this movie in Austin, with the cast and crew, was an absolute dream! I had been disappointed with horror films over the last few years, and was very reluctant to see this classic horror movie reboot. All the “don’t kill a classic” clichés were dancing in my head. That being said, I couldn’t have been more wrong. With this movie, the horror genre has finally caught up with the rest of cinema. This film is truly a sight for sore eyes, both in gore (they used 10,000 gallons of fake blood) and cinematics. Balance that with a solid storyline and above-par acting, you have a film you can’t miss. Hats off to you Fede, I look forward to your next film!
I am assuming that this will be coming out on DVD and Blu-ray sometime mid-summer. PLEASE, do yourself a favor and get the Blu-ray. This is a great looking film that deservers the 1080p treatment. Maybe when it comes out my wimp friends will watch it.
I give it a solid 8.75 Matt Stars (more on these later)
P.S. If you can still see it in theaters stay after the credits ………….Groovy
